Moms feel like 'second-class citizens' heading into Democratic convention


The Ron Paul people are causing some tension for Republicans in planning for the party's convention next week. And it looks like (some) moms are doing the same thing to Democrats, whose convention is the week after.

Via Politico:

"Moms with young children 6 years of age and under who cannot be left at home, some of whom are breastfeeding, are relegated to second-class status within the Democratic Convention, unable to participate as a delegate due to antiquated policies and inadequate accommodations that were apparently in place before Women’s suffrage," Susie Shannon, a delegate to the 2012 DNC Convention.

"The DNC requires children and babies to have a credential to enter the Convention, and then denies these credential requests from moms.  The DNC credentialing process is being used as a tool to prevent mothers from participating at the Convention and is nothing short of discriminatory," said Lindsey Horvath, president of the Hollywood NOW.

Which convention will have the most annoying guests? Let's call it a tie.
